The Defense ministry and Communication Ministry have asked censor board to ban an upcoming Nepali movie, ‘Badhshala’ even before censor evaluation. Nepal Army has objected the use of army dress in the movie. But, the underlying issue is more than the dress.

badhshala - ban letter

‘Badhshala’ is made on a story of torture in Army custody during Maoist civil war. The movie is directed by Manoj Pandit.

In a separate report, prime minister Baburam Bhattarai, who is also the defense minister, has expressed his surprise on such an order. He has asked the censor board to do the regular censor.

**summary in Nepali***

"कथानक चलचित्र "बधशाला" नेपाली सेनाको पोशाक लगाई छायांकन गरिएको लगायतका विषयमा सम्बन्धित निकायको स्वीकृति समेत नलिई तयार गरिएको हुँदा उक्त चलचित्र प्रदर्शनको लागि इजाजतपत्र प्रदान नगर्न र प्रदान गरिसकेको भए चलचित्र हल लागायात्मा प्रदर्शन गर्न रोक लगाइ दिन…"  रक्षा मन्त्रालयले सूचना तथा  संचार मन्त्रालयलाई पठाएको पत्रको आधारमा मन्त्रालयले चलचित्र विकास बोर्डंलाई चलचित्र प्रदर्शनमा रोक लगाउन पत्र पठाएको छ ।

प्रधानमन्त्रीको यो बिषयमा ध्यानाकर्षाण भएको उनका स्वकीय सचिव विश्वदीप पाण्डेले बताएका छन् । उनका अनुसार "बधशाला"को सेन्सर प्रक्रिया पनि अन्य फिल्मको जस्तै हुने र सेन्सरको समयमा कुनै समस्या भएमा प्रधानमन्त्रीबाट पूर्ण सहयोग हुने पनि बताएका छन् ।
